What is a Midfoot Sprain?

A midfoot sprain is an injury to the ligaments of the central region of the foot, known as the midfoot. It is a common injury that occurs during athletics, in particular those sports where there is cutting and twisting that can lead to this injury. It can cause an athlete to miss considerable time from his or her season. Greg Oden of the Portland Trailblazers and Jason Witten of the Dallas Cowboys are two recent high level athletes who sustained a sprain of their midfoot.

In most of these cases, the athlete will be able to return to participating in their sport in anywhere from a week to a few months.”

It's hilarious because it's true. Regardless of your symptoms, a few clicks of WebMD or Dr. Google will have you convinced of your impending doom by way of some horrific ailment.

As a guy that who has had numerous sprains over the years, primarily due to basketball in my younger years and snowboarding during the last decade or so, the thing to note about a "sprain" is that the devil is in the details. The primary details being the specific ligament(s) involved and the grade of the sprain. Sprains range from grade one to grade three with grade one generally being just a strain or stretching if the ligaments with no actual structural damage done. Grade two means a partial tear with likely some degree of joint instability and a grade three is a complete tear. Yes, a torn ACL is technically still a "sprain". It's a grade three ACL sprain. Basically sprains can range from no big deal and in a week or two you'll never know it happened to major ordeals. Minor ones can also accumulate over time to create chronic issues. If you remember a few years back when Cam had surgery to "tighten" his ankle ligaments that was almost certainly due to repeated mild sprains over the years.

I have no personal experience with foot sprains so I can't help out there. Most of my sprains have been ankle, knee, or wrist related.

It's pretty much always a good sign if someone has a foot injury and is walking under their own power without crutches/assistance otherwise. 

I could see Cam playing week 1, there's such a wide variety in recovery times for foot sprains. Could take anywhere from a few days to a few weeks to a few months to heal completely.

Huddlers interpretation : Cam's foot may fall off... Must sign Kap.

Guys a sprain doesn't mean poo without us knowing what grade, speculation is pointless

That's like saying "The athlete can come back anywhere from 1 day to never walking again"

An athlete with a midfoot sprain will have sustained a twisting or pivoting injury to his or her foot. They will develop immediate pain and later front of foot swelling in the central region of their foot. The swelling often can lead to bruising on either the top of foot or bottom of the foot.

Based on that section, I can now put a name to what happened to myself a few years back playing ball with some friends on Fridays. I actually ended up spraining each of my feet in separate instances about 10 months apart and they both sucked. My two sprains didn't require any surgery or anything serious, but it took 2-3 weeks before I was really able to run/cut on it again. Even bearing weight on it for a considerable amount of time was a pain in the *** for the first week and a half.

With the world class medicine and treatment he'll have, he'll likely be ready for Week 1 if it's only the severity that I experienced.

Didn't the team say he will be practicing this week? Why is everyone so worried about a non injury?
